Fire on the Mountain (Live at Radio City Music Hall, NYC, October 31, 1980) lyrics

by

Grateful Dead


[Verse 1]
Long distance runner, what you standin' there for?
Get up, get on, get out of the door
You're playin' cold music on the barroom floor
Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core
There's a dragon with matches that's loose on the town
Takes a whole pail of water just to slow him down

[Chorus]
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 2]
Almost ablaze still you don't feel the heat
It takes all you got just to stay on your feet
You say it's a livin', we all gotta eat
But you're hеre alone, therе's no one to compete
If mercy's a business, I wish it for you
More than just ashes when your dreams come true

[Chorus]
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 3]
Long distance runner, what you holdin' out for?
Caught in slow motion in a dash for the door
The flame from your stage has now spread to the floor
You gave all you had, why you wanna give more?
The more that you give, the more it will take
That thin line beyond which you really can't fake

[Chorus]
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!
Fire! Fire on the mountain!

[Instrumental]
